2007 beckons

Just a couple of hours seperate me from the morning of 2007. The morning,when I'll take my Financial Statement Analysis exam. How romantic! Thats not all. There are a couple of nice parties happening on the New Years eve. and guess what! I'll not be attending any of those.

Well, on a more serious note, if 2006 was an action packed year, 2007 promises to be a couple of notches higher on that scale. The placement fever has gripped one and all in the ISB and one can really feel the storm that is just round the corner. Talking about storms.. my exam on the 1st has all the makings of being a mini storm.. which suggests that I should get back to the statement of cash flows..

Wish you all a Happy New Year. Keep walking!

R1 results

The round 1 results for admission to the ISB were declared 2 days ago. Some people were escatic, some dejected and all the others are waitlisted. Thats exactly how it was last year. I remember each and every moment of that Abu Dhabi winter morning (Jan 7, 2006) when the R1 resutlts for the class of 2007 were declared. I didnt sleep the night before. Infact, I had a long walk with R paaji (btw paaji, I miss those long walks and the roof-top pizzas and coffees) at night in anticipation of a favourable result next day morning. Next day morning saw my anxiety levels sky-rocket. But then, I got the mail - the mail that brought me here, to this roller-coaster ride.

Very soon, the class of 2008 will take over. I wish the admits and the R2 applicants good luck. One bit of suggestion to the R1 admits - Relax now and charge yourself for the most enjoyable and the most hectic year of your lives. Welcome to ISB!
